Hate to post this, but I've searched the forums and can't find it. About 3 or 4 months back- I think it was Paul that posted a really good thread about how to diagnose chicken illness. It had a link to a site, and the site systematically addresses each element of a chicken, with photos of what a healthy chicken part should look like (eyes, comb, beak, etc). I searched different criteria, even using Paul's name, etc, but no luck. Even went out to google and couldn't find it there.

I knew I should have bookmarked it....

This seems like a great place to also link something I found:

And now I present magical permaculture hypno cards. The idea is to give them to people that think all your permaculture babble is crazy talk. And be amazed as they apologize for the past derision, and beg you for your permaculture wisdom. If only there were some sort of consumer based event coming where you could have an excuse to slip them a deck ... richsoil.com/cards
